Carline thistle

Carlina vulgaris


Carlina vulgaris, the carline thistle, is a plant species of the genus Carlina. Carline thistle is a short, stiff and exceptionally spiny plant with a brownish yellow flower–head surrounded by straw coloured, petal like bracts. Although they flower from mid summer to early autumn the dead flowers retain the same appearance and can often be found well into the winter. It was spotted in Tzoumerka mountains National park, Epirus region, Greece.
